We sought out this restaurant as it was one of the places in our tour book. (That can be good or bad!) This was great. We hit it for lunch and were a little later than the average guest. Our family (3 younger children) was seated in our own private little room, which was great as we could relax a bit without the constant worry of disrupting other diners.

We never saw a menu but were told by some (locals) smokers outside that it was a great place with fair prices. They were spot on. The first plate had a red pepper medley that was to die for. We also had a Mandarin orange salad. I could have eaten a bucket full. We had a fruiti di mare and a pasta spada (??) that I could eat every night for the rest of my life. Bottom line: We loved the food, and price was fair.

This is by far the best restaurant in the city of Siracusa, and also where the local folks go to eat! I had dinner there two nights and the food was delizioso, everything was prepared fresh and the service and staff were excellent. The owner, Paolo, came by several times during our dinner to check on us and see if we needed anything. The prices were extremely reasonable. Everything about our dinner experience at Osteria da Mariano was Bilissima!!!

The owner took control from the off. No menus although a very busy restaurant we given a résumé off what was on offer and you could tweak it as you wished,also he understood when you had sufficient. Altogether a very good experience.

We have eaten all over Italy and Sicily and this had to be one of the finest meals we have had yet. Amazing appetizers, pasta, desserts....house wine was great...and the proprietor was wonderful. We had a nice fire in the fireplace..and it was everything one would think the perfect night out in Sicily should be. Highly recomment this out of the way....great find! ENJOY!!
